To me this show hasn't really ever come anywhere near reaching the fantastic heights of the night before, but that's not to say it isn't great.
The highlight for me just might be the fast paced and intense Death Don't, an amazing early version for sure!

This one goes to 11!
Just HAD to write a review for this one on 11/11/11....Sound is outstanding. If that is Pigpen on keyboards, it is the best I've ever heard him, just fantastic! Great "That's It For The Other One" sequence, with altered words in TOO, something to the effect of "couldn't write my name"....long, jammed out Cryptical into another fabulous New Potato Caboose....can't get enough! The Shrine poster for 11/10 & 11/11/67 shows Blue Cheer and Buffalo Springfield were on the bill also....wouldn't it be nice to hear some live SBD Springfield?!?! Check this show out!!!!

burning as a single psychedelic flame skywardly emanating a thousand glows from a single source…
This is where I fist realized that we are all one- amid the smoke of a rising fire it all burns together and the phoenix rises as one. Out of New Potato Caboose, I arose to find that the Grateful Dead were manifest of some outer existence contained within. The paradox is fitting, as for the music, merely the sun’s own tears!- the rays of sun, dancing in a million ways but illumined by same reason, to go forth into day, as they are beyond themselves in a transitively embodied form. They wear it well, the shape begins to take form before our eyes… Down the road from Canada in August they are burning themselves as the catalyst for the fire itself, burning as a single psychedelic flame skywardly emanating a thousand glows from a single source…
Anyone who doubts Pigpen's keyboard needs to take a listen to this Death Don't Have No Mercy. MMM!

Another Great Show From My Fave Dead Era
I don't really know what to say about this show except I remember when I first listened to it. I was on a bikeride, about 7 miles and I was riding along a cliff. At one point, during the Cryptical Envelopment Jam, I was riding along and I could see the Pacific Ocean and all of my town below. It was an amazing feeling.
I love the lead guitar solo in Lovelight, the organ and guitar interplay in Death Don't Have No Mercy, the harmonica in Schoolgirl, the early lyrics in The Other One, and the rare glockenspiel contributed by Mickey Hart in New Potato Caboose. Although the performances are all five star, the sound gets a little muddier after Schoolgirl.
One of several very good shows in 1967. Pigpen is great--he was certainly more consistently good than the other singers at this time.
All the songs are well done. I like this New Potato, which has some great jamming. Death Don't Have No Mercy is also hot.
There's no Born Cross-eyed because they hadn't started playing it yet. The first performance was 1/17/68, according to Deadbase (which also says they only performed it 4 times.)
A little audio funkiness at the beginning of Lovelight, but it doesn't diminish the show.

Jerry and company are on fire for this show and the sound quality is pretty good too. And yes that's Pigpen on keyboards, Tom Constanten didn't join until November of 1968. Going back to these old shows reminds me how integral Pig's organ originally was to the Dead sound. The boys play with an energy and quickness they ocasionally matched but never surpassed in subsequent years. Another great show from this era is 03/18/67 at the Winterland.

Wow, these guys are friggin' good
Blistering solos throughout Lovelight and Schoolgirl.
Turn it up!

yea good stuff
I like the raw dead early stuff - I was there and
will always hold the tunes close to my heart.
Side Note: The jam was in the Shrine Exposition Hall, not in the auditoriom. Mothers of invention used to hold there original "freak outs" @ the expo hall.

Do You Get it NOW?
Boy is this nice. Yes the sound quality gets muddy tracks 4-7 but what nice performances(wonder why no born cross-eyed?). I would assume that is TC(Tom Constanten) on organ not Pig...Although I have heard some good McKernan B3. Once again this is the most influential band of all time. They were so far ahead of others and had such a varied repetroire. Just listen to the licks and imagine a young Greg,and especially, Duane Allman(living in LA at the time) listening to this...GET it. I play in a band and as the youngest member at almost 48 ..I still can't believe how many experienced musicians and aficianados still don't get it. This is great stuff.Tracks 1-3 4stars 4-7 3 stars soundquality only...5 stars for the music
